I'm sure many of you will remember NCC-1701
's Apex Class thread (see here
). Well, I was very impressed with the look of his designs, especially this sketch:
And with NCC-1701
's permission I've set out to develop this idea a little further and build up a 3D model.
's thread the design evolved into a more of Daedelus era ship, whereas here I want to keep more of the TOS look about the design.
I'm still in the early stages of building the 3D model. My main departure from NCC-1701
's sketch is the integration of the shuttlebay "module" with the upper section of the engineering hull. Although, I do like the modular look in the sketch, I couldn't quite reconcile the off-set shuttlebay with my chosen number of deck for the ship (9 main decks).
Here's how it looks so far:
More coming soon...
